This weekend is the 18th Annual Kentucky Reggae Festival at the Water Tower.
It’s not just a bunch of local bands playing Bob Marley covers, either. Organizers of the event take the Jamaican heritage of reggae seriously, lining up eight authentic bands (many with true Jamaicans in their ranks), serving genuine Jamaican food and offering up a vendor marketplace featuring all things Jamaican.
It starts at 2 both Saturday and Sunday, and the entertainment goes until 11 or so. There’s free parking, a kids’ area and you can get in for just $6 before 6, $9 after 6, or free if you win tickets from Page One Kentucky and The ‘Ville Voice.
That’s right, we’re getting you in free. Just respond to this post by leaving a comment, using your real e-mail address, and you’re very likely to win tickets. You’ll just have to meet us Friday and pick them up.
